Shell Mode 'cd' Strangeness

Using tab-completion has a strange side-effect that I cannot explain.
I have a directory structure like this:

If I try to cd to the FooBar dir using tab completion like this it

> cd boojum/foo<tab><enter>

(Note the lowercase 'foo' and the absence of a leading "./" on the dir

However, if I do the exact same thing, but this time pre-pending "./",
it will fail:

> cd ./boojum/foo<tab><enter>
bash: cd: ./boojum/fooBr/: No such file or directory

Any ideas why this would happen?  I have dot (".") in my path, so it
should work.   This is on bash on fedora 7.
